Assembling Bear upgrade


I had a homemade clone of Prusa i3 MK2 for a while, and it never worked exactly right. The design is somewhat dated and I have decent quality components in it, so I thought it would be a worthwhile to try and make a series of videos about it.

I've seen a lot of videos with assembly streams, but I still made mistakes that weren't covered there.

What I wanted to do is to make a video showing how assembly would work for someone who is not mechanical engineer, get stuck at some parts, made mistakes, figure out how to fix them and what are the consequences of making those mistakes, without making the video too boring.

This series of videos covers from initial frame to assembling all the axis. This series doesn't yet cover wiring and electronics.


Here's the Full playlist.

And here's a few introductory videos:

Here's the one where I assemble reference corner

Here's a companion list of all of the custom or non-standard parts I used during the build.
